Marcella Hammett writes, "It is a sad commentary that parents today must be more concerned with murder than with measles." The headlines are true. Homicide is destroying America. Our families, our friends, and our neighbours are dying at unbelievable rates. More than 20,000 people are murdered each year, leaving thousands behind to struggle with the aftermath of this life-altering event. If you've ever cared or wondered how people cope after their lives have been impacted by homicide, read this book. Marcella Hammett is an epidemiologist by training and a humanitarian at heart. Her life as a researcher was forever changed after attending a Valentine's Day memorial rally for the family members of victims of homicide held in a tiny church in Atlanta in 1994. As a result of that experience, she was inspired to take on this courageous task. Permanent Heartache contains twenty-two testimonials from family survivors in six different cities. In their own words, they memorialise their loved ones and describe an unenviable transformation. With time periods ranging from one to eighteen years after the loss, surviving family and friends take you through the stages of shock, rage, hope, healing, and in some cases even forgiveness.
